The utility knife is the quintessential all-purpose kitchen knife. It’s your culinary bestie, the one you know will always be there for whatever you need. Count on your utility knife for those quick, daily tasks that still require ease and precision, such as peeling, slicing or trimming a piece of fruit. Which isn’t to say this trusty tool’s worth ends with apples and berries. Your utility knife is also happy to serve as a paring or trimming knife, producing perfect slices of small roast and fowl or removing meat from the bone. The word utility is all about practical use – as in, use it for practically anything.
